What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth faster and with fewer office visits than traditional braces.  Invisalign aligners are:

  • Completely invisible –  aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them!  Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are wearing braces, unless of course you tell them!
  • Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won’t irritate your mouth like traditional braces often can.
  • Customized just for you – Your  aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Hershey uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth, then she customizes each aligner so that it fits your mouth, and over time moves your teeth into the proper position.
  • Removable –Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
  • Effective – You will begin to notice a significant difference even before your treatment is complete! Most treatments are completed within one year; however this can vary from patient to patient.

How Does Invisalign Work?

When you begin your treatment you will receive your entire set of custom fit aligners.  Each set of aligners is worn for only one week unless otherwise directed.  After each week you can switch your aligners to the next set and continue straightening your teeth.  Over time you will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth and in just a few months you will have a straighter, healthier smile!
